Just Schools: Pursuing Equality in Societies of Difference
eds. Martha L. Minow, Richard Allan Shweder and Hazel Rose Markus
The result of an SSRC Working Group on “Law and Culture,” Just Schools examines schools with widely divergent methods of fostering equality in order to explore the possibilities and limits of equal education today. Educators and policymakers who share the goal of equal opportunity in schools often hold differing notions of what entails a just school in multicultural America. Some emphasize the importance of integration and uniform treatment for all, while others point to the benefits of honoring cultural diversity in ways that make minority students feel at home. The contributors to Just Schools combine empirical research with rich ethnographic accounts to paint a vivid picture of the quest for justice in classrooms around the nation. Buy from Amazon
